This is the third post in the series covering Samsung’s participation in the MIT’s Medicine Grand Hack. You can find the first post here, and the second post here.

The Promentia team was the Grand Prize Winner in the Mental Health and Professional Burnout track. Promentia’s project was an Alzheimer’s Disease prevention app, also named Promentia, with the tagline “Stay You.”

The team’s main point is that people do not realize that Alzheimer’s Disease is a highly delayable disease. More and more people are finding out that they are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s Disease as the popularity of at home genome services continues to rise.

They created a mobile prototype deployed on a Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and showed how they could use Samsung’s technology to develop a way to digitally enable ‪Alzheimer’s disease prevention.‬‬

By monitoring the results from blood tests for six specific biomarkers scientifically proven to correlate to the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease (hsCRP, Homocysteine, Fasting insulin, Hemoglobin A1C, Fasting glucose, and Vitamin D), sleep, and exercise, the app tailors personalized feedback.

      I'm looking at the 2020 7000 and 8000 series tvs at bestbuy but don't see the 2021s. Any big difference? I'm leaning toward the 8000 50". I bought a 7000 2020 43" for a bedroom but now want to go 50 inch in another room.

      Trying to figure out why apps are not available on this platform.  Very discouraging that Tizen apps are either not available or not up to date .  Any idea why that is.  It makes it very hard to recommend anybody to use this platform and wish there were more updates availabe.  It this point this platform I would try not to buy if it was on a TV.   It's a shame because I like samsung products but their products with Tizen seem so out of date.
